Call for Submissions: Journal of International Media & Entertainment Law Spring/Summer 2021

Posted by M Epstein, community karma 45

The Journal of International Media & Entertainment Law invites submissions for Vol. 9:2, which is set for publication in Spring/Summer 2021. Please submit articles no later than Friday, February 26, 2020. 

The Journal is a semi-annual publication of the Donald E. Biederman Entertainment and Media Law Institute of Southwestern Law School in association with the American Bar Association Forum on Communications Law and the ABA’s Forum on the Entertainment and Sports Industries.

The Journal provides a forum for exploring the complex and unsettled legal principles that apply to the production and distribution of media and entertainment in an international, comparative, and local context. The legal issues surrounding the creation and dissemination of news and entertainment products on a worldwide basis necessarily implicate the laws, customs, and practices of multiple jurisdictions. The Journal examines the impact of the Internet and other technologies, the often-conflicting laws affecting media and entertainment issues, and the legal ramifications of widely divergent cultural views of privacy, defamation, intellectual property, and government regulation.  The Journal publishes articles on international law, domestic laws of nations (including U.S. domestic law) and topics that compare international or domestic laws from different jurisdictions.

Feature articles traditionally are between 10,000 and 15,000 words, or fifty-to-sixty double-spaced pages in length. Depending on the topic and depth of focus, the Journal also accepts some shorter articles. Articles can be submitted through Scholastica or by email to   

We look forward to your submissions.
